First euroCRIS webinar

Mon, 04/05/2020 - 22:32 -- euroCRIS Secret...
A first-ever euroCRIS webinar in Spanish language was held on Apr 23rd under the title "Introducción a la gestión de la información científica. El proyecto USatCRIS" ("Introduction to Research Information Management: the USatCRIS project").
The 1-hr session, jointly organised with our Peruvian strategic partner CONCYTEC in Lima, provided a description of the project to build an institutional CRIS based on DSpace-CRIS at Universidad Católica Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo in Chiclayo (Peru) by project lead Mery Mendoza Rodas. This is one of the institutional pilots being implemented by the CONCYTEC-led PerúCRIS project to build a national CRIS infrastructure in the country. The recording for the webinar was made openly available after the session (the event starts on min 15 of the recording).
